Don't throw your rose petals to be crushed underfoot!
The wedding that approaches this fall brings memories of the very first wedding in which Marash Girl participated, little Marash Girl then 4 years old with her three year old cousin . . . an argument as they walked down the aisle, two flower girls, each carrying a basket of rose petals, one throwing the rose petals from her basket onto the unfurled white carpet, little Marash Girl salvaging the discarded rose petals and placing them into her basket, all the while stage whispering to her partner flower girl, "Don't throw your rose petals on the ground! Don't!" It made no sense whatsoever to little Marash Girl. Why would anyone want to throw rose petals on the ground only to have them crushed underfoot . . .
